  • "Had a wonderful few days, Donna and Ben were very nice and were on the end of the phone should we need them, this was not necessary as they had thought of everything."

    The cottage was very comfortable and felt very homely. Great cottage, perfect positioning for exploring. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    It was in a great location for seeing all the wonderful sights that Cornwall has to offer and the host Donner was more than helpful, the cottage was very clean and comfortable and the hot tub was so nice to use after our many amazing walks with our pooch Monty, we would definitely book again if we visited Cornwall again.

    The owners are lovely making you feel welcome and ensuring you have all you need . The hottub was lovely to use and as a family we all enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to return next year. Highly recommend staying here for a quite relaxing break with plenty of things to do nearby, and of course lots of gorgeous cornish beaches.

  • "Was a lovely clean and well equipped cottage."

    Great base for travelling around from, and fabulous walks from the cottage door. Nothing too much trouble from the owner, she was there if needed but gave us privacy. The hot tub was great and the wine and tea/coffee facilities on arrival were greatly appreciated. Highly recommend this cottage.

    Property was lovely and clean and hot tub was fantastic after a lot of walking during our days exploring. There’s a lovely pub in Lanlivery where we enjoyed many of our evening meals. Only downside was the extremely narrow roads but to get an idyllic setting that was part and parcel I suppose. Hosts were fabulous also

  • "Everything we wanted and needed."

    If it works for our dogs then that is half the battle won. Walks on the doorstep, 15 minutes from both Cardinham Woods and Par Beach and much more if you have the time and weather on your side. The garden is completely enclosed,it is peaceful (save for a few cows)and the sofa is magic for whatever combination of guests decides they want to get on that particular night. Everything is well presented and in good condition but the cottage is actually dog friendly rather than dog tolerant as is normally the case. We have just booked for 2023 (2 weeks this time). Great value and real countryside!

  • "What a wonderful home from home Crift Farm Cottage is."

    Beautifully decorated, good quality furnishings, bed linens, and all spotlessly clean. The garden is great for dogs and kids and the hot tub a HUGE bonus for the adults! We had everything that we needed for a great holiday. It was good to have Donna close by for recommendations for walks and trips out. The village pub, The Crown, just under new management is welcoming and serves great food. Although there are no shops in the village, when arriving to the cottage from the A390 there are 2 farm shops (the one in the village is a community enterprise I think so worth supporting) Sainsbury's also deliver if you want to order shopping online. The nearest convenience shop is in Parr about 10 mins drive. Parr Beach is also good for the dogs, they have run of the place all year round. Download the Just Park App so you're not caught out without change for the meter but it is free after 5pm. Lanlivery is well placed for visits to either coast. about 15 ins from Bodmin too. We really enjoyed our stay and cannot fault Crift Farm Cottage at all. Thank you Donna.

    It was just what we needed for a relaxing getaway. The cottage is fabulous, being modern and kitted out with everything you can think of, especially if you have dogs, but still keeping a cosy feel to it. Located just a mile from village of Landlivery, the Crown pub, with excellent food, is in walking distance. There are many local walks you can start from the cottage, but if you want to go further a field its excellently located for travelling around Cornwall. The hosts were super friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend and we shall be booking again.

    The cottage was very well equipped and everything was immaculate. The garden was totally enclosed so we didn’t have to worry about our dog and the hosts were lovely and welcoming. The hot tub was definitely a winner too! We would have booked to visit again next year but the price had increased by such an amount that it made it unreasonable for us. If you have the money and want peace and quiet then visit this lovely cottage.
